Reading, it's important.
~~~~~~ Mrs. Larios Announcement
You will no longer be able to take quizzes for books below your reading range. You must take quizzes at or above your reading range.
I have given each of you a sticker with your corresponding range for the library books, please utilize this tool when selecting books.
Semester 1 Extra Credit Opportunity:
I am encouraging students to meet and exceed their AR goal, which is already 10% of their grade. For this triad only, I am going to allow students to earn up to 200% of their AR goal, thus giving them up to an extra 100 points towards their grade. Please be sure to read over the Thanksgiving break, and keep in mind that all AR points are due by December 9 at 3:30 pm.
Taking notes isn't enough, you need to interact with your notes. Writing something out is the same as reading it 5-7 times. Interacting with your notes is scientifically proven to help you retain the knowledge at a greater rate.
